Opened by National Amusements in Summer of 2001, the Bridge Cinema de lux is a top notch cinema.

It was taken over by Rave Motion Pictures in December 2009, and renamed Rave 18. In 2013 it was taken over by Cinemark.

Saw The Dark Knight Rises IMAX yesterday… haven’t been to this theater in a couple of years since it was the Bridge… it’s still a great place to see a film and the IMAX is true!

Spent a night on LOCK DOWN inside this theater as a hostage situation unfolded across the way at Nordstrom Rack… free movies and popcorn…. strange night.

Sounded like an ugly situation. But I’d like suggest that perhaps in the future you might provide a link or other info as to what went on instead of just dumping those 2 lines here.

This theatre is now part of Cinemark due to their acquisition of Rave Cinemas on May 29, 2013.

Anyway want to guess the number days till they yank the IMAX 15/70 projector out. The last one in LA.

Saw “Man of Steel” on Saturday 6/15 w/the IMAX 15/70 projector still going strong.

Sorry to say, the days of 70mm IMAX here are just about numbered. Cinemark is about to convert it into their so called “xD” auditoriums. Overall, the presentation quality here has really gone downhill.

It finally happened. The IMAX auditorium is no more here. The 70mm projector is gone. Cinemark says the space will become a “XD” screen. RIP IMAX 2001-2014.

The new XD screen in the old IMAX auditorium opens tomorrow according to a huge ad in today’s LA Times. It states the new name of the theater is Cinemark 18 and XD Los Angeles.

What gets me is they list in the ad “State of the art Digital Sound!” What the heck does that mean, is this 1995 or something, is it Barco Auro, is it Dolby Atmos, is it Dolby 7.1 or 5.1?? They also state “Oversized Screen!!” Again, what does that mean…is it a 70 foot screen or a 60 foot screen, how does that differ from the other screens. I just think this is bad marketing. Maybe its just me, but Cinemark should give us a reason to visit the theatre where they ripped out the best IMAX in LA.

Whose initiative was it to drop IMAX from this theater: Cinemark’s or the IMAX company?

I was at the Rave last week and there were temporary construction barriers blocking off the old IMAX entrance. So they were doing some sort of work on that auditorium.

Also, has Cinemark officially dropped “Rave” as the name? I understand that large outdoor signage may take a while to change, but the website still says Rave 18 (the “IMAX” has been removed from the name, though).
